Parents' country of origin influences risk of stillbirth

I can't imagine the pain that parents of stillborn baby must feel. I hope this work helps to reduce the probability of it happening in the future.

The risk is highest when both parents migrated to Canada from the same country of origin, especially from a country with a high rate of stillbirths, said Dr. Joel Ray, a physician at St. Michael’s Hospital and scientist in its Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute. This risk is compared to a pregnancy where both parents are born in Canada, and takes into account a mother’s age, marital status and income level.
